  1 rater(s)

This salad is a little out of the ordinary, only in that it contains ingredients that you wouldn’t normally choose to include in a salad. Don’t let that scare you, though. It’s good to experiment with different ingredients, both for the salad and the dressing.

There are various textures and flavors in this salad, which makes for an enjoyable eating experience. The beets offer a rich earthiness, but the spicy ginger dressing balances that flavor. The sweetness of the dried cranberries (make sure they are unsulfured and free of added sugars) complement the greens. It’s a great salad, so go ahead and add it to recipe arsenal.
